About the book
The treatment of indigenous and tribal peoples, the world’s largest minority, is a major humanitarian issue. It shapes world history and raises profound questions about what it really means to be human.
This book refutes criticisms of tribal rights and answers about every question you might have about them: how they live; their history; what they want; and what they have given the world. Governments will hate it.
What they're saying
Jolene Ashini, Innu
A book everyone must read - powerful stories of the harsh realities of both assimilation and rejection of our peoples and our struggles around the world.
Hugh Brody, anthropologist
Corry has devoted a lifetime of energy and intelligence to the cause of tribal peoples. He offers an astonishing wealth of knowledge and a multitude of insights in language that is clear and yet impassioned. Here is a book that is both fun and luminous.
Colin Firth, actor
This book makes the case that we've far more to learn from tribal peoples than we have to teach them. It's compelling stuff.
Damien Hirst, artist
I love Earth, it’s my favourite planet – this book is a refreshingly original approach to who tribal peoples really are and the startling contribution they make.
Anastasia Tolstoy, student
Illuminating… made me feel much closer to tribal peoples.
Botswana government ministers (evicting Bushmen from their lands)
Corry is a liar, devil and loose cannon.
